Lands Improvement strive to be the leading strategic land developer in the UK, and we are continuously seeking new land opportunities. Our aspirations are for high quality, sustainable developments that incorporate our requirements for high standard of Placemaking and Planning, to leave a legacy for the next generation to enjoy.
We have an ongoing requirement for purchasing further Strategic Land Opportunities which meet the following criteria:
200 – 5,000 dwellings
Type 1, 2 and 3 (2-30 years)
Greenfield, Brownfield and Greenbelt
"We are very interested in hearing from agents, consultants and landowners to help us identify new land opportunities. We have chosen to move into Promotion/Development agreements, as well as a combination of Freehold Land options to further our strategic objectives."
Lands Improvement are experts in unlocking development through the planning system.
We have become known in the industry as experts in planning due to our ability to deal with complicated political and environmental issues through our engaged and community led approach.
Maximising value is a key trait of Lands Improvement. Because we buy our land freehold rather than via Promotion agreements, and, because we finance
via cash reserves, we are more engaged to maximise value than many of our competitors who are often focused on speed of consent.
We then share this maximised value with the vendors via the Overage.
We Deliver Infrastructure
We regularly deliver early infrastructure to sites in order to sell de-risked land to developers.
The de-risked nature of the land results in increased competition for the land because it is ready to be built on, which in term results in higher land values than would otherwise be achieved.
Large Investment Capacity
Lands Improvement is fortunate to be privately financed but also large enough in its own right to be self-financing.
Our investment capacity allows us to both buy freehold sites, deliver infrastructure and take a long-term view to adding value through investment in projects, where perhaps our competitors may struggle.
At Lands Improvement we are a small team with relatively few projects per person. This means that we take personal responsibility for the project by producing well thought out strategies and visions and by taking a personal approach to the promotion of the site.
We have a team of planners, technicians, land managers and finance experts as well as an involved management team.
Long Term Land Owners
Lands Improvement is a long-term landowner with a long term vision. Our model views strategies from 2 – 50 year time horizons and commits to strategies and financing for that period.
Our shareholders (TT) have an equally long-term vision for the portfolio of assets previously described as comprising c.12,000 properties on a portfolio value of £11bn.
At Lands Improvement, we have always had a focus on our legacy. What imprint do we leave behind and how does that shape the way we live, work, and play.
In our commitment to excellence, we constantly challenge ourselves and as such, we have been implementing Lands Improvement Placemaking Framework central for us is the challenge of how to make all our sites ‘happy and healthy places’, which people are genuinely proud to call home and spend time in.
We are able to conclude transactions quickly and we are now open to enter promotion agreements as well as unconditional Freehold purchases. Get in touch If you have information that could help us identify new land opportunities.
